Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This is an anthology of psychoanalytic criticism applied to the wider field of cultural studies including class, gender, representation, ideology, and law.

"What I like most about this book is its demonstration of the importance and breadth of Lacan's thought. These papers take up Lacan's invitation to engage his texts as he did Freud's, not out of passive discipleship but out of a shared conviction of the consequences of the work of psychoanalysis, that after Freud nothing is quite the same." -- Michael Payne

"The collection demonstrates the relevance and potential of Lacanian theory beyond specifically psychoanalytic concerns to the wider field of cultural studies. The essays dealing with ideology break ground in their approach to political issues. The collection, taken together, stimulates thought." -- Janet Thormann Mackintosh

In this volume, psychoanalysts, cultural theorists, and literary critics demonstrate the relevance of the unconscious economy to the field of cultural studies, applying psychoanalytic criticism to political and aesthetic issues related to the legal and ideological superstructure of contemporary society.These writers have adopted a variety of rhetorical positions when engaging cultural issues that deal with representation, ideology, class, and gender. Contributors include Willy Apollon, Richard Feldstein, Slavoj Zizek, Juliet Flower MacCannell, Judith Roof, Ellie Ragland, Elizabeth J. Bellamy, Bruce Fink, Maire Jaanus, Elizabeth Bronfen, Hanjo Berressem, Peter Widmer, Danielle Bergeron, Lucie Cantin, and Catherine Portuges.

Willy Apollon is a psychoanalyst at GIFRIC in Quebec. Richard Feldstein is Professor of English at Rhode Island College. He is co-editor of Reading Sminar XI: Lacan's Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis: The Paris Seminars in English, also published by SUNY Press.
